Violence (interpersonal & systemic) 

There was a nasty mass shooting here over the weekend. When people boost platitudes after these devastating violent events like "we will bring the perpetrators to justice," they are complicit in the web of lies spun by modern day slaveholders and plantation operators.

What they mean is they're gonna throw some people in prison and ruin even more lives. That's not justice. That's punishment, and sweeping the real problem under the rug. It's evil.

@PixelFed all right, to answer myself:

1. Seems not, there's an issue for it but not clear if it's set to be worked on or being worked on:

2a. seems to be the case and forgot to look for an issue for this
2b. it is possible to remove an image from a post you are in the process of creating, from the horizontal list of images; maybe a second image has to be added for this interface to be obvious/possible.

hi @PixelFed or anyone using am i correct in observing that

1. It's not possible to edit a post to add pictures or for anything other than changing the license after posting?

2a. Once a post is started, it's not possible to cancel it other than posting and deleting? Every time i hit + i'm back at the post i'm trying to abandon, and

2b. There's no way to remove a picture once selected?

At least i see now to press the subtle [1] to add more photos…

Last week I shared my first prototype designed in @penpot with a client and it worked seamlessly.

I'm excited to move more and more professional work projects from Figma to Penpot

Great to see @WIRED featuring the amazing Hope Credit Union -- and strategies based on ongoing co-investment rather than charity.

(Originally from the Giniw Collective) For the 1st time since active construction, Line 3 pipeline water protectors went to trial last Friday. Brock Hefel was convicted of a public nuisance misdemeanor and sentenced to 30 days in jail (twice was prosecutors asked for).

Climate crisis is here & the state is caging people brave enough to take action. "Be ready, get organized & don't leave anybody behind!" #stopline3

Officially banned from twitter! I was wondering when this would happen...

Minneapolis liberals and progressives: we have to clear the encampments, they're hubs for sex trafficking!

Today's headline: Top MN GOP strategist arrested at downtown condo and indicted for recruiting underage girls for porn

Time to clear the condos, everybody! Call public works, ready the bulldozers!

I think we on the left could use a lot more friendly, approachable media. While I love me some good aggressive graphic design, right now, I think the right is consistently winning the propaganda game in part because they wrap their ideas with really easy-to-swallow tone and appeals to common sense. We can do that too, in pursuit of a more compassionate, humane, and just world.

So I made a couple images for my local chapter of the IWW that I'm pretty proud of.

I have SVG versions of these if people want to play with them. I'm happy for these to be spread widely; please download them, share them, modify them, whatever. Information wants to be free!

"kids don't go outside anymore" challenge

name 3 things kids can do outside that are free and available to everyone without grownups hassling then or thinking they're doing crimes

Have you read about [[exit to community]]?

It is a new model for startup "graduation" that focuses on integration with the community.

capitalism & murder, genocide, rant 

I mean look at the sheer number of people murdered so capitalism can exist, entire peoples and civilizations wiped out because they fought back or were simply incompatible with capitalist order, look at how it's ongoing right the hell now, and TELL me capitalism is natural. TELL me it's non-violent. Go on. I dare you.

NEW Inkscape Feature!

Straiten lines with a single click, and delete them with a double click. Take a look in this quick feature video:

Hey Minneapolis the anodyne language in this flyer hides a very real and immediate threat of extreme violence— throwing a community of two dozen people out of the stable home they have built on utterly vacant city-owned land into instability and true homelessness, enforced by the infamous police brutality of the MPD.

Please stand with us against this.

Every story about the #ChauvinTrial today & tmrw should include that the city of Minneapolis is using it as cover to threaten the destruction of the long-term unhoused community in Near North.

Minneapolis elites are united with Chauvin in their desire to exterminate our poor & bipoc neighbors.
